Chad Da Don and Kelly Khumalo’s rumoured relationship has had the country talking for the past few months and this week, Chad seemed to share a big hint that something is going on between the two musicians.
The rapper, who first got people talking when he appeared in steamy, behind-the-scenes images from Kelly Khumalo’s video set, tweeted on Monday morning that he had woken up next to “K.K.” Quick investigation confirms that Kelly Khumalo’s initials are, indeed, “K.K.” and Twitter users quickly responded to the tweet with memes of their own.
Many joked that Chad was in “danger” (more repetition of the rumoured ‘Kelly Khumalo Curse’) while others were eager to see evidence. One thing that was certain, however, is the fact that most people on social media seem to finally believe that Kelly and Chad are definitely an item.
To be fair, both artists have been hinting at a possible relationship ever since they first shared the visuals for their upcoming music video, Dance Comigo
Although they looked very cosy on set, it was widely accepted that the pictures they were sharing of one another were taken to promote the single and its accompanying video.
However, since they finished shooting, the would-be-lovebirds have shared a number of suggestive pictures and posts on social media and Chad’s morning post was just the latest:
Woke up next to K.K ❤️✨

When Kelly was asked about her relationship with Chad Da Don in an interview with East Coast Radio, she responded coyly when she said:“Let’s just say I’m very happy…he’s amazing.”
Although in the same interview, when she was asked about HHP, Kelly hinted that she and Chad were together at the time that the news broke. She revealed: “I was told by Chad. I could not believe it, I said he was lying, maybe it’s just one of those social media stunts,”
Both Chad and Kelly seem to be spending more and more time together outside of their one-time video shoot but the true test will come once the video for Dance Comigo releases.
If these two are still posting cosy pictures of one another at that time, then we will be firmly convinced that they are an item.
Until then, there is a real chance that this could be another publicity stunt.
Kelly Khumalo's former boyfriends have had a fair share of bad luck and a sangoma once said Kelly is cursed, anyone who dares have sex with her will die.
Singer Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maarohanye (38), who is the father of her first child, went to jail for culpable homicide after being involved in a drag race accident that claimed the lives of four school children in Soweto.
Then her married soccer star boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, was killed at the house of Kelly’s mom in Vosloorus after an alleged robbery that went wrong. But the star has put all that behind her and says she is ready for love.
Another Kelly Khumalo's ex boyfriend, businessman and music promoter Prosper Mkwaiwa, died in February 2015. Prosper was on his way to seek medical treatment after complaining of having a fever when he passed away. Prosper Mkwaiwa, who was originally from Zimbabwe, was first introduced to the masses when he married actress Tina Jaxa in 2000 in an extravagant wedding. The couple soon became tabloid fodder with their many fights and their habit of airing their dirty laundry in public.
They went their separate ways after two children, child support drama and a protracted divorce. Mkwaiwa then "poached" singer Kelly "The Virgin" Khumalo from her management and became her new manager, business partner in ProKelly Entertainment and later fiancé. That relationship also bit the dust in a public and messy way.
There are also reports that Prosper life started courting mysterious misfortunes after he allegedly broke Kelly Khumalo's virginity in 2007. Back then, Prosper, who was meant to get married to Kelly, told the media that he had had sex with Kelly.
"Yes, we have done it," said a bold and proud Prosper, but he would not be drawn into the details of when or where.
In January 2015, a sangoma revealed that Kelly Khumalo's boyfriends will continue experiencing mysterious misfortunes until Kelly agrees to become a spirit medium as per her ancestral spirits demands.
